In brief: Depends on fracture

The majority of fractures that are not open (laceration) can be treated closed with a splint which immobilizes the joint above and below the break.
Our studies has shown for best results that motion should begin no later than 3 weeks. When involving a joint or with significant rotational or angular deformity, surgery may be needed.

In brief: Splint or Surgery

If the bones are in good position, broken fingers are best treated with a short time of splint protection followed by protected motion.
If the bones are out of position, they'll need to be positioned and held in position surgically with either pins or small screws.
